Encased in a sleek 1RU chassis, FS4 provides incredible flexibility for broadcast and ProAV professionals with a single channel mode for 4K/UltraHD video processing and up, down and cross-conversion to/from 2K/HD/SD, as well as a 4-Channel mode for multi-channel density that enables four 2K/HD/SD channels of simultaneous conversion and processing.

Sports leagues and teams can grow and prosper in ways they never imagined before.  A team can take itself global with the right strategic combination of branding, fan experiences, content and distribution.  Properly monetizing attendance, viewing, sponsorships and merchandise for the local and global fans drives revenues many times over what a local sports franchise could ever have expected just a decade ago, even in a major market.  And a team does not have to reside in a major market to achieve this type of global success.
 
The UK’s Arsenal Football Club has applied itself to such a strategy and now numbers its fans in the millions.  Key to the success has been careful attention to developing the brand and the fan experience, including touches such as giving fans an Arsenal-oriented live audio commentary via an app on their device of choice, so fans can watch the broadcast but tune out impartial broadcast commentators in favor of a “true fan” experience.

NewTek™ today announced Network Device Interface (NDI), a new open standard for live production IP workflows over Ethernet networks. NDI allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit and receive many streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real-time. This new protocol can benefit any network-connected video device, including video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, and many other production devices. NDI connectivity will be available in Q4 as a royalty free software developer kit (SDK) for anyone wanting to enable IP workflows in their facilities, or in production devices and systems they manufacture.
